Hello Gatsby

The first post on this site was written on July 27th, 2004. Wow, nearly 14 years ago. I believe it was written onScott Watermasysk's .Text platform, at least that is the first blogging platform I remember running for real. I eventually followed...


I have given myself another home page facelift

Customizing Graffiti: Chalk GetAppSetting

Customizing Graffiti: Chalk RedirectIfSinglePost
